Ektar 100 | Rollei 35 S

The best color film? Probably the Ektar. Pulls the colors out. Doesn’t saturate like velvia jpegs. Less grainy than portra. Right?

These came back and the scans popped out. Posted a few a couple of week’s ago. Still finding gems in this roll.

Ektar always makes me forget my digital camera.

Week 20 | October 26 – November 1, 2019

Film, digital, black and white, color, country: this week had a bit of everything.

It’s been cold and clear. More winter than fall. Wondering when the rain will start. Maybe this weekend when the clocks fall back and we get that extra hour…in exchange for the plunge into darkness.

Had a hard time picking photos for this week. Here they are:

Ilford Delta 400 | Rollei 35 S

Back from Moonphoto comes this weeks scans: Ilford Delta 400 shot with the Rollei 35 S.

The first three shots are architectural. Two from Ballard, including the first one of the award winning Ballard Library, and the third a building on the campus of Northwest Hospital.

Other writers have gushed about this film. I won’t go that far. My favorite black and white film is probably the Fomopan 100. But I may have been misusing this film. With the high, bright overcast sky, my pictures seem washed out a bit. I’d like to see more inky blacks; more charcoal.

But the following are acceptable to me. Especially the second and third.

Week 16 | September 29 – October 4, 2019

More film this week. Many more shots with the Rollei 35 and the Canon AE-1 than with the Fuji x100f. I’m waiting for the Cinestill x-pro 50 scans to arrive in my inbox.

I also picked up some zines. Four from Conspiracy of Cartographers arrived and a few others are on order. Ordered some esoteric film from Analogue Wonderland

Here are a few shots from the past week.

More scans coming back from Moonphoto. This time it’s three rolls of Ektar 100.

The Rollei, when you get the focus right, takes truly incredible pictures.
